Capital region fine particulate matter response

Description

The Capital Region Fine Particulate Matter Response (the ‘Response’) was prepared when Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development annual ambient air quality assessments found that fine particulate matter concentrations in the Capital Region exceeded the Canada-wide Standard. The provincial annual assessments for fine particulate matter in 2008–2010 and 2009–2011 identified that Edmonton Central and Edmonton East air monitoring stations were in Level 4 (the Mandatory Plan to Reduce Action Level) of the Framework. In addition, Edmonton South and Lamont monitoring stations were in Level 3 (the Management Plan Action Level). According to both the Framework and the Clean Air Strategic Alliance (CASA) Particulate Matter and Ozone Management Framework, Alberta’s commitment to achieving the Canada-wide Standard required that a mandatory response plan is developed by Fall 2014. The goal of the Response is to reduce ambient fine particulate matter concentration and remain below Level 4 at all monitoring stations within the Capital Region.
